Squatters takeover Sofoline interchange

Kumasi Sofoline Interchange has now turned into a haven for weeds and squatters as well as hardened criminals.

The project which was started by the erstwhile Kufuor’s government in 2008 was to ease vehicular traffic jam on the Kumasi to Abuakwa road and further serve other areas. It however stalled during the reign of the late President John Evans Atta-Mills.

Some residents around the project area in an interview with journalists expressed their displeasure about how the project had been neglected.

According to them, the site had become a dwelling place for squatters and thieves who rob them at gunpoint, especially in the underground pedestrian crosswalk.

The situation, they said had forced them to cross the road at unauthorized places, endangering their lives in the process.

The angry residents therefore called on the appropriate authorities to revisit the Sofoline Interchange project so that it would serve its intended purpose and save public purse as well.
